|Hugh's stocking from Anthro|
Inspired by the look of this stocking from Knit Collage, I set out to knit a plain stockinette stitch with my lovely wool. It's so beautiful! The white bits soften the colored bits like snow covering a city. Seriously, it's gorgeous.
Buuuuuuut, I made the leg too long and ran out of wool for the toe. In hindsight, I should have just ripped it back, shortened the leg, and finished it. But no. I decided to see if I could knit the toe and heel in another wool, like lots of Christmas stockings are done. Unwisely, I knit the heel in a floppier, thinner wool that looks a bit sad. I cut several rows worth of the wool and knotted it in place, so I'm pretty much committed to the heel, but now I don't like it! Sigh. Someday I'll learn...Photos soon.
